Minnesota ERRC Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installer

Minnesota ERRC (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage) Public Safety DAS / Signal Booster Installation Service is guaranteed by, an ERRC System Specialist. Many Minnesota jurisdictions now require NFP or IFC-compliant public safety radio coverage as a prerequisite for getting an occupancy permit. However, Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ERRCS) or public safety signal booster and distributed antenna system (DAS) requirements vary from region to region nationwide across United States.

Communication is paramount in the state of Minnesota due to extreme winter weather conditions. Minnesota’s system is known as ARMER or Allied Radio Matrix for Emergency Response. ARMER runs on a 700/800 MHz format with a Project 25 trunked system in place. State use of VHF frequencies are its primary source on 150-174 MHz bandwidth.

Minnesota has enticed help from Federal Engineering to provide professional and technical assistance in the development of their VHR plan. The goal in Minnesota is to establish an interoperable zone for all public radio users. Minnesota has implemented a narrowband format to replace the old wideband system and utilize VCALL 10 and VTAC11-14 channels for VHF channels statewide in the system. Requirements for Minnesota ERRC rules compliance are as follows:

  • Approved VHF Interoperable Frequency Use Agreement.
  • Uniform Field Access Statewide according to regulations.
  • Use Standardized CTCSS codes.
  • Adhere to Statewide Radio Board Terms of Agreement.

Minnesota has requirements for existing buildings to upgrade by adding a public safety DAS or signal booster system if public safety radio signals coverage does not meet required density. Please note that in-building Minnesota public safety radio coverage requirements can vary greatly based on Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Local AHJ regulations are based on ordinances from several organizations including National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), International Building Code (IBC), International Fire Code (IFC) and International Code Council (ICC).

Please contact us for exact requirements based on research within your Minnesota state's county and city rules and regulations. We can provide the building owner a grid test and design. We can also review the current ERRC system if already installed, and make adjustments if needed. If necessary, we can install a new ERRC system to meet currently required criterias and achieve building certificate of occupancy approval and issuance.

We perform site survey, and ensure public safety bands coverage by doing cellular and public safety grid test. Then, if ERRC grid test shows less coverage than the required threshold, we can install ERRCS (Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System) such as passive or active DAS (Distributed Antenna System) in following Counties of Minnesota.
